today I am thankful for my therapist.
he told me today that I am an amazing woman. He told me that he loves how I view the world, and that even with a life threatening disease staring me in the face daily...I have not allowed it to invade my soul.
I told him that I give him a great deal of credit in a huge shift in my outlook. He is the one who called my attention to the fact that if someone asked about my story the only piece I shared was the cancer part. He reminded me that I am so much more than some mutated cells. Because of my therapist I have made a genuine effort to rediscover things that brought light into my heart. Now the black cloud that normally settles over me one week post treatment isn't here. I am truly happy. So for that I am thankful.
I will work on the ability to gracefully take a compliment. Mostly I stare at my shoes and wish it would go away. I am almost comfortable being who I am...and believing that who I am is pretty awesome. I am NOT comfortable with anyone else commenting on the fact that they might think I am awesome. Oh well...I can't fix everything all at once...being perfect would be so difficult...heehee
